Two Egyptian workers were killed and four others wounded Sunday after a shell hit their bakery in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, a medical source said.

"Paramedics brought in the bodies of two Egyptians after a shell hit a bakery in Benghazi's al-Hawari district where they used to work," the source working at Benghazi hospital told Anadolu Agency on the condition of anonymity.

"Four other Egyptians were wounded to varying degrees during the same incident," the source said.

It is not yet clear who fired the shell.

Libya has been dogged by political instability since the 2011 ouster and death of long-ruling strongman Muammar Gaddafi.

Ever since, rival militias have locked horns, bringing violence to the country's main cities, especially capital Tripoli and Benghazi.

The central government, meanwhile, has appeared largely absent from the scene.
